Bostik Division North

Bowers fell to a surprise defeat to out-of-form Norwich Utd at the Len Salmon. The Planters were two goals ahead through Hafeez Sanusi’s early brace (10’ & 17’) and on 64 minutes, Liam Jackson put the visitors in a very strong position. Substitute Tony Stokes pulled one back for Bowers though their bad afternoon was confirmed when Lewis Clark was sent off late on. This was Bowers’ first loss in six league matches while the visitors finally registered their first win of the campaign.

Canvey Island 1  – 0  Bury Town  

Venue:  Park Lane      |  Attendance: 288

Canvey  edged ten-man Bury Town at Park Lane. Town were reduced to ten with 15 minutes left as Darren Mills saw red.

Bury Town have lost their last two league matches, both of them 0-1.

Grays Athletic  0  –  1  Brentwood Town

Venue: Parkside   | Attendance: 172

Brentwood edged Grays to pick a fine win at Parkside. Andy Freeman popped up with the only goal just before half-time to the points and end a streak of five straight league defeats. Grays have now lost five league matches on-the-trot.

Hertford Town 2 – 1  Ware 

Venue: Hertingfordbury Park  |   Attendance: 379

Hertford continued their recent good form with victory here in front of a good crowd at Hertingfordbury Park. Brett O’Connor gave the hosts the lead on 31 minutes, before Michael Toner’s penalty on 61 minutes doubled the lead. Ware pulled one back through Murat Karagul with seven minutes left. Hertford have only lost one of their last six league matches while Ware fell to their fourth loss of the season.

Maldon & Tiptree   4  – 2   Tilbury

Venue: Park Drive   |   Attendance: 116

Maldon laid the foundations for this win in the first-half at Park Drive. The Jammers were well ahead at the break as first Ryan Gondoh put them ahead on 16 minutes. Hot-shot Junior Ogedi-uzokwe made it three by the break with a brace of penalties (20’ & 45’) and then grabbed his hat-trick on 67 minutes. Substitute Luke Hornsley grabbed a quick-fire brace (70’ & 74’) to keep it interesting for the Dockers though Maldon secured their fourth win of the season.

Romford  1 – 1  Witham Town

Venue: Ship Lane           |   Attendance: 74

Romford were held by Witham in which both sides could’ve done with a win. The Boro took the lead on the stroke of half-time through Chris Taylor. Though Town levelled 16 minutes into the second half through Tim Monsheju’s goal.  Romford’s winless run extends to seven league matches through the previous six were all defeats. Witham haven’t won in four league matches now either.

Soham Town Rangers   1 – 1   Barking

Venue: Julius Martin Lane              |   Attendance: 128

Barking maintained their good recent form with a point at Julius Martin Lane. Jay Knight’s spot-kick gave Justin Gardner’s side the lead on 16 minutes. Though Soham denied them the win with a penalty of their own three minutes from time, which Callum Russell duly converted. Soham are winless in their last four league matches while Barking are unbeaten in their last four matches.

I'm a Mental Health survivor (been surviving for years) & campaigner. I also like Music & Sport. This blog is centred on all things Non-League Football, mainly Match Reports of matches I've seen (mainly Essex Senior League but also other Leagues) though it also houses the regular round-up's of Bostik (Isthmian) League Division North action most weeks, plus semi-regular ones on the Bostik Premier Division & others. It also has the odd post about the scary world that we're all in, talking from a Mental Health perspective. Thank you for reading.
